Over the next two weeks, TMC will be undergoing a short, yet important series of internal and external renovations. These renovations necessitate a period of inactiveness for the website. But, fear not, we will be back, and we will have a firmer touch for all of your cultures.
It is with mixed feelings that I write this message. I am sad that we must halt something that has been so fun and rewarding to write (and hopefully to read as well). I also apologize to the readers that we are taking such a surprise break, but it is indeed a necessary step for us to expand to reach new and under-touched cultures of the world.
I am proud to say that when we return (2-4 weeks), we will have an:
- Updated and aesthetically pleasing website
- User-friendly and effective layout
- Consistent and meaningful contributions from our authors
- A renewed sense of focus and determination to deliver true culture to you
Apologies again for this unannounced sabbatical, but we promise that our new product will be well-worth the wait.
If you have any questions, suggestions or think you have something to offer the #TMCSquad, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Looking forward to touching your culture in a more effective and meaningful way,
For Valentines Day, we were introduced to the top 10 burgah songs from someone in our generation, and top 10 burgah songs from someone in the baby boomer generation. Now, we have another member of the baby boomer generation giving out his list to help us youngings bag a cougar. How he put it was, “How to make someone fall in love,” but after seeing this list, I realized it will only make women of a certain age wanna burgah (cougars). I renamed the title of the list, but the feeling is the same; these songs will get you that older woman you’ve always wanted.

I was watching an episode of Real Time with Bill Maher, and once again he managed to blow my mind with some information. There is something fishy going on with Seniors is America.
40% of young adults use some sort of protection during intercourse. Only 6% of people over 61 use protection.
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, STD rates in Seniors have doubled from 2000-2010. That has put Seniors in competition with people from the ages 20-24 in the largest increase in STDs
According to Harpers Magazine, from 2006-2011, $172 million of tax dollars was spent on penis pumps for seniors.
While Viagra has been making a killing, seniors are getting Syphilis and Chlamydia. Men who are taking sexual enhancers double the rate of STD growth to those who are clean, riding 3 inches hard on the 4th of July.
Only 5 % of Seniors take the free STD test that is provided through Medicare
That last stat brings up a topic that people need to know about, the tax dollars that are going to our Seniors, instead of the children of this country. Thanks to Bill Maher, I learned that a significantly greater amount of federal tax dollars are going to seniors rather than children.
$3,822 federal tax dollars spent on a child per year
$25,455 federal tax dollars spent on a senior per year
5% of our budget goes towards people in the last year of their life
76% of Seniors are dissatisfied with the way our country is going
Seniors are the most opposed group against the Affordable Care Act
Now there are definitely some larger scale problems going on America, but this is not the culture to represent America. Retirement homes are turning into freshmen dorms, seniors oppose the act that helps keep them alive, seniors are all getting laid but still dissatisfied, and we are spending more money on our past than our future. For instance, flip the amounts we spend on a child per yer with what we spend on a senior per year. that extra 23,000 could be going towards education, counseling, and wellness.
That would make our country better, not buying penis pumps for George to use during The Price is Right. Maybe I’m just jealous that Seniors are getting their burgahs and not me, but something real fishy is going on in retirement homes nationwide.
How would I sell a viagra like pill? Maybe show a picture of a gourmet burgah with an average mush. Maybe a video clip of this gourmet burgah with her after sex-glow, with the average mush lying in bed. How does Pakistan sell viagra? They put the leader of the free-world’s face on it.What sells? Sex Sells. When you’re selling sex, whats the next best thing? Political power. This Pakistani advertising team has got it down.
Powhatan was born a slave, escaped, and received an education in Cincinnati, Ohio. Once the Civil War started, he was anxious to fight against the confederates. He started as a foot soldier. However, during the battle of Chaffin’s farm, Powhatan had a chance to step up, and that’s exactly what he did.
During this battle, all of Powhatan’s higher officers and generals died. There was one soldier that took the reigns, and led the rest of the soldiers through the enemy, and to a safe ground. That soldier was Powhatan Beaty.
Beaty won the medal of honor for his courage and leadership. At the ceremony the president said Powhatan, “Took command of his company, all the officers having been killed or wounded, and gallantly led it.”
David Ortiz’s contract is up after this season, and it is a surprise that the Sox and David haven’t reached an extension. The common “media” blames David Ortiz, claiming he is asking for too much money. Here is what David had to say about it:
“I don’t even know why they’re bitching about me talking about contracts. Guys putting up my numbers, they’re making $25 (million), $30 million. I’m not asking for that. I’m asking for half of it. And they’re still bitching about it? Fuck them. I’m tired of hearing them shit talk about me when I talk about my contract. Hey, every time I talk about my contract, I earn it, bitch. So don’t be giving me that motherfucker.”
Preach David, Preach! I am completely on David’s side here. He is the reason why we won the World Series this past year. He is consistently in the top 10 in the league in RBI’s, and OPS. I’ve heard he is asking for 3 years, 45 million. Yes, he is old and 3 years seems like a long time, but so what. He’ll retire a red sox, and be a legend in Boston forever. I hate the over-anxious sportswriters (cough Dan Shaughnessy cough) who always blame the player automatically in these situations. Good for Big Papi for lashing out at those motherfuckers.
